5.0 out of 5 stars Down East 3 July 2014
By wogan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This new Explorer's guide is not really for the rough and ready backpacker. It is a guide for those who wish to explore Maine mainly by auto, although there is information on public transportation. It is about8 "x6" and really too heavy to carry around in a purse, there are 640 pages. There are no colour photos but many black and white, the maps are clear and simple, but it would be better to have a more detailed map if you are driving around.

There is information on lodging and restaurants, although not always is the price level given or if it is a casual establishment or not. There are symbols for the author's favorites, special values, child friendly, handicapped and wireless internet.
The book is divided into; southern coast, Casco Bay, Midcoast and Islands, Down East, western mountains and lakes, Kennebec Valley and Maine highlands. Both of the authors live in Maine and are experienced travel writers. Many Maine citizens use this as their go to guide. When we visited Maine, my relatives had copies of this guide in their house.

There is a lot of information on each section -some background, where to go, historical and tourist sites, parking, when to come, getting there, tours, parks and beaches. It is a fact that many tourists today look forward to shopping as much as they do the sites, so that information is included too.
This is one of the better and more complete guidebooks around.
4.0 out of 5 stars Maine, all of it... 12 Aug 2014

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
"An Explorer's Guide to Maine" is in its seventeenth edition, a long and often thoughtful exploration of the State of Maine, for those who like to read about where they're going. The guide features lots of the usual information about where to go, what to see, where to stay, and what to eat. What may appeal to some travelers, however, are the large chunks of history, commentary, and opinion about Maine, its past and its present. At over 600 pages, there is coverage here not only of the ever-popular coast of Maine, but also of its scenic interior mountains and lakes, the great Baxter State Park, and even the open expanses and Acadian flavor of Aroostook Country. It is a big state. The City of Portland is as far from Fort Kent in the northern corner of the state as it is from New York City. Its many parts add up to lots of possibilities for touristing, especially for visitors willing to get off I-95 or Route One and explore.

Maine has much to appeal to many tastes. A careful reading of this guide will point the way to many experiences in outdoor recreation, sightseeing, some forgotten history, and some great food. The text includes multiple maps and photographs (only black and white, unfortunately). The state is worth the time, and this book is worth the read. Recommended.

I wish I would have read the reviews better, I didn't realize this book was black and white. I find the print small and hard to read. I was a bit disappointed.
